The title says it all! As someone that travels the U.S. test tasting pizza while on trips for business or pleasure I found Isabella's pizza to be the best In Little Italy. There Italian sandwiches are hands down the best in Little Italy. If you need a quick meal on the run or for back in the comforts of your home then go to Isabella's! It's worth it! There is almost zero seating at this corner pizza/sub shop but don't let that stop you! You will regret it.

Excellent fresh pizza and lots of Italian cold cut specialties. Friendly service, like you're part of the neighborhood. I may go back again tonight!

I enjoyed this tiny family-run pizzeria in Little Italy. I got the garden pizza which was delicious, and my date loved his sub. There isn't much room to eat-in, but they were pretty quick in getting our to-go order ready. I'd definitely recommend.

I've been on my quest to try every Baltimore pizza-serving place I can find. Isabella's was my next stop and it didn't disappoint.

As the name of the quaint cafe implies, pizza and paninis are its specialties. I'd say the brick oven pizza is good, but the brick oven sandwiches are better. I came here excited about Isabella's pizza, but I left being excited about their sandwiches for when I come back next time.

Isabella's is right smack in the middle of Little Italy. Parking, if you can find it, is street parking with a 3 hour time limit. Seating at Isabella's is few, but that probably won't deter me from coming again.

What a pleasant experience this was, a hole in the wall Pizza joint,with the best Brick Oven Pizza in Baltimore. To top it off the staff is so friendly. Many of the restaurants in Little Italy are very average, Isabella's was way above this mark!
